The Nerdist Podcast

The Nerdist Podcast is a weekly interview show "about what it really means to be a nerd" hosted by Web Soup, Talking Dead, and @midnight host Chris Hardwick, who is usually accompanied by Jonah Ray and Matt Mira. The audio podcasts are typically an hour in length and include conversations with notable comedians or entertainers, sometimes at their own home. The show launched February 8, 2010. It serves as the flagship podcast for Nerdist Industries, which was founded in 2012 after the success of The Nerdist Podcast. The show's theme song is "Jetpack Blues, Sunset Hues" by the chiptune band Anamanaguchi.

Also on hand were EPs Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady and Steve Molaro. Recorded at San Diego Comic-con 2011.

Alison Brie stars in Mad Men and Community . She is hilarious, and if there were a drug for delightfulness, certainly it would be synthesized from her DNA. She also prefers shorts to jeans. Also, Chris lost his virginity to a Belinda Carlisle song, Jonah got locked in his building due a faulty garage gate, and in addition to the Dave Matthews Band, Matt also loves Regina Spektor. I think he wants to be their baby.

This is a special "one-on-one" podcast, with just Mike and myself, as Jonah and Matt were both out of town doing out of town things. Don't worry, though, I'm sure Matt was liking the Dave Matthews Band wherever he was.
